Rest Better With A Snore Guard

allen snore guardWhen you snore on a nightly basis, this could mean you have airway obstruction and over time, could be more likely to suffer from sleep apnea. Which is why your Allen, TX, dentist could offer a solution that doesn’t involve surgery or other intensive treatments. Instead, we have a simple oral appliance to help you breathe easy. Better rest means you feel more alert and rested, and enjoy a better quality of life too.

Why Do We Snore?

A snore is created when soft tissues in our throat and mouth partially block airflow. As air is forced through when we breathe, this vibrates the soft tissues and creates a loud noise. Causes could include sleeping on your back, a large neck circumference, sinus or allergy issues, a deviated septum, or sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, you stop breathing completely for brief periods as the airflow is blocked completely. This interrupts your sleep cycle and leaves you feeling exhausted. Chronic snoring is often a warning sign of the disorder.

Impacts on Our Daily Life

Snoring could mean we aren’t sleeping well, so we could feel more exhausted during the day, or moody. If we also have sleep apnea, this means we could eventually suffer from a strained immune system, as well as high blood pressure, heart disease, and in extreme cases, stroke or heart attack. You also prevent your significant other from resting good as well! To feel rested and alert, and to avoid major complications for your quality of life, immune system, and even your cardiovascular system, you may need to talk to us about treatment.

Our Snore Guards

A snore guard is similar in appearance to a mouthguard, and is custom-made and fitted for your smile. Worn as you rest at night, the device helps move the jaw forward gently, preventing the collapse of soft tissues in the night so you breathe without a snore and without interruption. The appliance is easy to use and clean, and provides a non-surgical solution to your ability to rest. If you have any questions about how we treat poor oral health and even minor cases of sleep apnea, then contact our team today. You can use your remaining 2021 dental insurance benefits or leftover health savings funds before they expire, and sleep better through the hectic holiday season!
